Our final day involved a stop at Petworth House and garden. The house contains extensive selection of Turner, and Van Dyke, amongst many other, and particularly in Covid times, were concentrated in just a few rooms, giving a very intensive and easily digested tour. Notably two William Blakes were “hidden” in an archway, easily missed and as if saying they were the least important of the collection!
On round the “garden” and deer park, I certainly remember well going there but the details of the park eluded me. However it was great to see, at a distance, the dear, already rutting and bellowing across the park!
Total Mileage for the weekend 170 miles.
